Average U.S. House Now Has 5.7 Internet-connected Gadgets: NPD
The NPD study, which surveyed more than 4,000 U.S consumers 18 and older in the first quarter of 2013, found that there were more than half a billion Internet-connected devices in U.S. homes. That can include computers, tablets, smartphones, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, video game consoles, and streaming media set top boxes.
While the number of PCs has remained fairly steady--a 93 percent penetration rate--smart phone penetration rose 5 percent, to 57 percent, while tablets rose to 53 percent, up from 35 percent.
